Baltimore Gets Yanked at Memorial
Game 1: NY Yanks 5
Roy White belted his 4th homer of the season to give the Yankees an early 2-0 lead in the 2rd. But by the 3rd inning
had regained it’s composure to take a slim 3-2 advantage. P Bruce Howard would then lose all
control. Hitting batters, walking
batters and seeing batters cross the plate before being yanked by Oriole
Manager Earl Weaver. 3 runs would cross
the plate for New York, in the 4th,
and that is all they would need edging the Orioles 5-4. P Stan Bahnsen (1-1, 1.88 ERA) had a stellar
performance keeping Baltimore in
check most of the game. Roy White earned
game MVP honors going 2-4 with a homer.
Game 2: NY Yanks 5
Much of the same as in game 1 as Yankee pitching dominates Oriole hitting. Mel Stottlemyre (3-1, 2.93 ERA) throws the second complete game in a row for the
staff. Home runs by Bill Robinson (2)
and Tom Tresh (2) provided the Yankee
power and New York improves to 9-9.
